Just a friendly reminder that Montana Public Radio's fall drive is coming up and not only do we look forward to spending time with you, but we also need your help! Sign up to volunteer.

Whether you are able to spend a few hours with us in the phone room, in the front office, or in the development office following the drive to thank our new members, it is all important work that we do together to keep MTPR going strong.

The new host of Montana Public Radio’s literary program can’t get her head out of the books. Luckily for Sarah Aronson, who was named host of “The Write Question” this summer, it’s what she loves to do.

“I’m thrilled to read new works,” Aronson said. “And I love that I get to have thoughtful conversations with the authors.”

If you drive across the country tuned in to public radio stations along the way, you'll hear many of your favorite shows no matter where you are. Programs like "All Things Considered," "This American Life," and "Radiolab" are staples of public radio. But each local station also has its own flavor, reflecting the unique character of the communities it serves. That's why Montana Public Radio is one of the first places people call when their pet goes missing.

Look for our new, weekly "Inside MTPR" post about what’s going on at Montana Public Radio. Whether it’s a special program you might enjoy, a feature by or about one of our dedicated staff, or just a peek behind the curtain at MTPR, we want to share these stories with you.

This week, I’m going to focus on the efforts to secure federal funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB).

We're honored to be awarded radio website of the year for www.mtpr.org, and non-commercial radio program of the year for Threshold Podcast from the Montana Broadcasters Association.

MTPR's Rodeo Radio Theatre was also named runner up for non-commercial radio program of the year.

Congratulations to all of this year's E.B. Craney award winners, and thank you to all MTPR supporters who help make public radio possible!

Election Day is always an exciting and unpredictable day for any news organization. A “special” election can be even more so. Now throw in a dramatic event involving the front-running candidate on the eve of the election, and we’re at a new level. Our Montana Public Radio news team rolled with the punches, kept digging and found the latest information to best inform everyone before the polls closed on Election Day.

Montana Public Radio will be off the air temporarily for listeners in the north Flathead tuning in on 90.1 FM. The outage will begin on May 10 at 11:00 p.m. and last until 5:00 a.m. on May 11. We apologize for the inconvenience

You can tune in to our live stream during the outage (or any time) at mtpr.org, or via the iTunes, TuneIn or Stitcher apps.
